This is where the locals frequent & the food & merchandise prices are not inflated as Shilin night market. Highly recommended esp. for the wide local food variety! Allocate at least 2 hours here.

Been to a few night markets in the past but not here. First smell after getting out of the cab was Tsodofu or Stinky Tofu...a local favorite. I had to try it as generally I'm a fan of the very pungent snack. This was a busy stand and worth the 50 yuan for 4 pieces for sure. In fact it... More

This round to Taipei, other than having our Wedding photo shoot, we went night market hopping. Lol.. And we hop to Rao He night market. I must say, Rao He night market is the one of the best I have visited during my first and 2nd trip. Is way better than shilin night market, shida night market,(mainly on clothes and... More

I have been to most of the night markets in Taipei and this one stands out as one of the best simply because of the food. It is not as touristy as Shilin, and unlike Shilin it is very easily navigated as it runs straight East to West for about 500 odd meters, and at the East end is the... More

I world rate this as excellent night market. Although it is smaller than Shilin night market but the "open space" concept is the original taste of a night market. Not too big, easy to way around and many good food. One of the famous "mee sua" can be found here.

Having managed to hit three out of the numerous night markets in Taipei, I must declare Raohe to be my favourite one. It is definitely not as touristy as Shilin, and the food is top-notch. Made two trips here with different friends. On my first trip to Raohe, a friend of mine took me around. We feasted on grilled oysters,... More

Several things make this night market stand out from the competition. First, at the east end is a magnificent Mazu temple which is among the most spectacular temples in Taipei. Second, if you wander down any ofvthe small alleyways on the north side they bring you to a romantic river park where you can sit to eat take away snacks.... More

We went to Raohe Street as its a bit less touristy than the main night market in Taipei. The street was packed with lots of food vendors and shops. We had some excellent spicy shrimp and crab. I had some duck tongue snack and smelly tofu. We also had some stewed pork rice which was only OK. One of my... More

Gone were the days the sales people and stall owners greet and serve with warmth pride and sincerity. They used to let you enjoy what they cook with pride and pay when you are satisfied. Sales people there nowadays express their reluctance to serve you if you do not promise them you will buy. Especially the " korean" clothes store... More

What a fun evening to spend a few hours walking around the Raohe night market! We tried a few other markets during our time in Taipei but this continued to be our favorite. We'll miss the snacks in Taipei!
